Do you have any secrets to having a successful career? 
There is no definitive answer to the “secrets” of success varies as it varies from person to person. However, from my experience the main factors in order to have a successful career are having self-belief, a sense of humour and integrity.

What advice would you give aspiring women in your industry? 
My advice would be to speak up and make sure your opinion is heard. The experiences we go through, in both our career and personal life, shape our opinions and increase our knowledge, so why not share this? Everyone’s opinion, knowledge and experience are as valid as everyone else’s.

How do you achieve work life balance?
For me, the best way to achieve work life balance is to focus your energy on the task at hand, be it work or home and try not to worry about one when you are focusing on the other. Acknowledge that no one can do everything and do not be afraid to seek assistance or clarification if needed.
